My family were booked in but we were running slightly late. As the peak time had passed, this wasn't a problem. I had booked online and specified that one of the party had gluten intolerances. The staff were very respectful of this special requirement. Instead...of queuing at the carvery station to get the meal, my husband was offered a specially prepared carvery meal which came directly from the kitchen. This avoided any contamination of the serving equipment on the carvery station. We expected to wait around 30 minutes for the 'special' meal to arrive, however it arrived within minutes. The staff were very helpful with our needs and explained they had gluten free desserts too. Fortunately, we were so full we decided to return another day to sample the puddings! Thank you to Michelle and her team for a stress-free meal.More

Visited this evening last minute, food was really nice and we liked the fact the chefs are still dishing up the food instead of the customer, portions are MAHOOSIVE! Big thanks to Sarah I think she was the manager on duty, fab customer service! So...friendly and welcoming even though it was quite late, also brill with our 5 year old boy, he even asked when we got home if we could go back and see that lady again! Also had a lovely waitress ( she had an accent but I’m rubbish at them so don’t want to guess) but she was great too! Will definitely be back!More

We visited here on a Monday evening as a table of 2. The servers were all very nice. We thought that the carvery was cheap, but it wasn’t very tasty. As the chef placed it on our plate, it all ended up looking like a...big plate of slop, and it all became very soggy. The stuffing needed to be cooked more and the veg tasted like it had been boiled to an inch of its life. We will try again on a Sunday where hopefully the food will taste more fresh.More

We had a lovely meal at Toby Carvery tonight, with great service from our waiter, Seb. A few in our group had allergies and intolerances, but Seb and the rest of the team were extremely accommodating and took extra care to ensure our meals were...prepared separately. We will definitely come again!More

Went to the Toby carvery today for lunch usually no problem picking what I can eat being coeliac choosing what I like being helped by the server's help & advice. Today was different due to a change in the way things are done, due to...someone having had a bad reaction. Every thing was brought out from the kitchen freshly done couldn't have been any more helpful everything was spot on. gravy came in a jug separately The waitress Michelle could not have been any more helpful thoroughly enjoyed my lunch and the service was excellent. She was apologetic about the change in the way things were done but to be truthful it didn't affect the lunch at all. Anyone who is coeliac knows how hard it can be but can high recommend Toby at Rotherham.More

We come here often for a little family get together. The food is always top notch! Plenty on the plate and bottomless drinks! Staff are out of this world. Nothing is too much trouble. Michelle especially has a lovely relationship with customers, knows everyone by...name and treats them like family, just like she’s known then for years. The oldies especially like this. Staff are all friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this particular Restaurant just for the friendliness and comfortable atmosphere! XxxMore

We use Toby Carvery at least twice a month and we are always happy with the food,service and politeness of its staff especially Michelle who always makes us feel welcome as she interacts with us and always puts a nice smile on my sons face,I...think these staff are credit to the business and can imagine how much abuse they receive because of covid restrictions as I work with public too so know their attitudes when told rules.

I visited Rotherham Toby Carvery this evening with my husband and as stated in the last 3 reviews the food was terrible. The beef consisted mainly of fat and the fresh dish of cauliflower brought to the servery at my request (due to the previous dish having only scraps of mush left) was stone cold! When I complained to the manager he was apologetic and provided me with a dish of piping hot cauliflower but by that time the rest of my food was cold. I asked whether they probe the food to check its temperatre prior to serving and informed not all dishes are probed. I recommended in future to avoid disappointment to customers each dish be probed. It is my understanding that environmental health state the safe temperature at which food must be served. Am I wrong? When the waitress brought our bill she informed us the manager had deducted an amount. Although this gesture was good customer service I would have preferred a hot meal instead. Clearly they are mot leaning from their complaints and we will not be visiting this particular Toby again.

We always go around 12 to 2 in the day and foods always good never had a problem but you would think you would get same standard of food all day long .
